Noted – Bring Notes and Audio Together

Category: 

Description of App: 

Bring your notes and audio together with Noted
Noted is a fully-integrated audio recording and note-taking app. Perfect for lectures, meetings, interviews and conferences, everything you type is time-stamped to your audio recording – giving you an instant overview of all the important details.
By bringing them together, you never need to worry about trawling through pages of notes or hours of audio ever again. Just add a #TimeTag, so you can return to key moments instantly, and keep everything neat and tidy.

Accessibility Comments: 

All settings are easy to view and change. The note-taking payne is a standard text entry field, and the recording/playback controls sit above it, along with a button that brings up a list of time stamps in the note/recording that jumps playback and text-editing position. Type or hit the button to insert a “#time” tag while writing, and a time stamp will be added to the note. To navigate quickly, there is a “tags” item on the rotor that jumps the cursor. To then jump the audio playback as well, change the rotor to “lines” and flick down: VO will read the time stamp line. Flick down again and VO will read the option to adjust the playback position.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

All buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver, but the interface could be easier to navigate and use.

Other Comments: 

The free version is limited to 5 notes. Otherwise, there’s a subscription that provides unlimited notes and provides advanced playback functions like skipping passages without speech. For someone in a heavy note-taking environment like college, it fills a key role. I will probably do fine on the 5 free notes.
